“Great quality of jamon and to enjoy the culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Stand at the bar, like the locals do, ask for a cafe con leche (uno a la leche, would be yelled), and a very strong and tasty coffee with milk will come. The orange juice can not be fresher, squeezed right in front of your eyes, nothing that should not be there added! And if you try the jamon bellota or the chorizos, you'll come back for sure.

“Jamon jamon.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Standing room only dining, more like a snack stop really. Loud. You need to yell to order food otherwise the din makes you even hungrier. Yell oh- jai! and someone will take your order of Serrano or Iberico. I don't know much of Spanish hams but boy, they were good!

“Not a museum”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Bar specialised in ham. Borderline rude service after a long wait at a high price.

“This is an inexpensive eatery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

This is a chain of food bistros. They all seem set up a little differently but basically you stand at the counter, order your inexpensive food, stand and munch away, pay and leave.
We had a beer and snack when we arrived in Madrid. Good fun to see this busy place.
We tried a breakfast next. Good value. Coffee, toast/sweet bun, fresh squeezed orange juice for 3E. We later found a better place near the Atoche metro station for breakfast.
We tried a hamburger at one of these places, fail.
